“We are looking for submissions that explain our entrants’ e-learning journey and how it has made a difference,” says New Leaf Technologies co-founder Paul Hanly.

“Be sure to include descriptions detailing the challenges your team faced, your objectives, processes, team feedback and the final outcome of your project. We want to know why you should win this award.”
